Watch Michael’s story, documented by the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Foundation, that tells his journey of being diagnosed with Leukemia, at 19-years-old, just 4 years after losing his father to cancer. He was the “Patient of the Month” for the month of May, which is also Mental Health Awareness Month.
We are taking a fond look back at a very special Ride2Revive event when we made a delivery to Joe DiMaggio’s Children’s Hospital on September 11th, 2019. Doctors, Nurses, Parents & Patients cheered as a flat-bed dropped off 5 yellow mini Lamborghini Urus cars for the children to enjoy, followed by a full-size yellow Lamborghini Urus. One of the parents said it looked like a mother duck and her little ducklings following close behind.
Ride2Revive brought these kids in the hospital a little bit of sunshine and a million reasons to smile, helping to distract them during their time spent at JDCH. Instead of being taken from their hospital room to the places where they go for treatment or body scans in a wheelchair . . . these mini Lamborghini cars make their movement throughout the hospital more fun. Just another way Ride2Revive provides Miles of Smiles on the Road to Recovery.

On 5/12/21, Evan and his father came to Lamborghini MIAMI + Prestige Imports 2.0 for a special R2R visit to check out some of the coolest supercars. Evan, who is 11-years old, has a rare metabolic disorder for which there is no known treatment. He loved going for rides and getting the chance to sit inside of them, ask questions and learn about the cars he had only seen from a distance or on TV. Our staff was pleasantly surprised of his knowledge and eagerness to absorb all of the interesting facts of so many makes and models. Evan, now part of the R2R family, is looking forward to participating at all of Ride2Revive’s upcoming events.

Hey guys ! Just wanted to give you guys a shout out !
Brett posted or one of you posted Ari’s birthday day video !!!!!! It was like the best medicine for Ari and to watch it !!! Brought back the best memories !!!! Of an unbelievable day!
Ari had surgery on Tuesday. It was intense and tore at our heartsas parents …. to see Ari in pain and to hear the doctors explain the situation pinched us in the gut! Two days Ari was hooked up and drugged up. Although it helped with the pain it didn’t help with his PTSD and his emotional well-being. Whoever he saw through the glass doors he would wave over – even the custodian! With half-closed eyes – take my iv out now! Thank god we are home and transferred his meds to his gtube. Healing at home is the best medicine for Ari! And Rosie came home to help! We watched the video no less than 20 times in a row! It made Ari smile! He keeps saying the wind was in my hair!!!! Little did u guys know when Brett posted how that video would truly revive Ari at the exact time we all needed it to! Miles of smiles on the road to recovery! Aka wind in Ari’s hair! We love u guys !! And we are so thankful for everything u do for Ari and for every ounce of love you show him. Sending a hug! Please share with Brett ( he’s not on our I am woman hear me roar chat lol ).
